Summer in Sataf

It is a well known secret that in the terraced slopes of Sataf,  10 km west of Jerusalem, indigenous fruit trees varieties are cultivated.  In season, the fruit cling to the trees and eagerly await to be picked and eaten free of charge; sweet, juicy and succulent figs in all shapes and colours, sweet and sour plums the size of cherries, wild prickly pears, bright clusters of sour sumac and the intoxicating anise scent of wild fennel flowers. 
The real secret is knowing where to find them...just follow the purple fig road.

TLV stills. In food

I recently took part in the making of a food documentary in Tel-Aviv & Jaffa
to be aired in the UK in the coming months.
This is a journal of the shoot, taken in stills.

The Hummus
The Shakshuka
The Cauliflower
The slow cooked stews
The bread
The Tomatoes
And the figs
